Am I Not Getting REM Sleep?

March 30, 2017

I feel like the only way I can fall asleep is if I use klonopin. So am I completely missing REM sleep?

I feel like without the klonopin I am not sleeping at all.  I had almost complete sleep deprivation before I started taking it.  Perhaps it was complete.  But does that mean right now I am just getting knocked out instead of really sleeping?

In this case it would be deadly over a period of time.

I have been having a lot of trouble concentrating at work or remembering anything.  So is my concentration going because of a complete lack of REM sleep?

I believe I have some sort of condition where true REM sleep slowly deteriorates over a long period of time and you forget a lot of specific things you do in your past.  At least that is what it feels like to me.
